With just five weeks to go until Christmas, you may find that your festive calendar is already filling up. Family get togethers, office parties, social gatherings and Christmas meals often call for a little something extra to set the mood. 
And what better way to do this than with your outfit? We happen to think that sparkles are the way to go at this time of year!
Not sure how best to pull this off? We’ve got three suggestions we think you’ll love.

Embrace metallics

If glitter isn’t really your thing, you can still get the sparkly look without it. Metallics can be a great way to bring a celebratory air to your outfit without covering yourself in glitter or sequins.
Opt for metallic clothes or accessories for a statement look, or tone it down with a monochrome outfit and eye catching metallic jewellery. The Reeves & Reeves Beauty Bangles Medium and the Step-by-Step Reversible Aluminium and Steel Disk Necklace would both be excellent choices here.

Play with light

A sequin dress, top or skirt is an excellent Christmas party look. After all, if you can’t overdress at this time of year, when can you?! One of the best things about sequin fabrics is that they catch the light beautifully. 
Choose your jewellery carefully and you can use this very much to your sparkly advantage! Highly polished reflective jewellery will look delightfully glittery against a sequin background. Try the Collette Waudby Dreki Triple Longship Pendant or the Claudia Bradbury Battered Heart Earrings to create a sparkly extravaganza. 

Choose one statement piece

Even the most paired back of dressers may want to add a bit of extra oomph to their outfit on special occasions. We think sparkly jewellery is a great way to do this. Special statement pieces such as the Claudia Bradbury River Diamond Pearl and Drusy Quartz Necklace or these Pretty Wild Jewellery Handmade Textured Solid Gold Stud Earrings will look gorgeous against a simple backdrop.
